WEST HOLLYWOOD—Two teenagers who went missing in Los Angeles National Forest on Monday, July 6, were found Tuesday morning.
The two 17-year-old boys were hiking near a waterfall in San Gabriel Wilderness at around 9:30 a.m. They were reported missing by one of the boy’s mothers at around 9:50 p.m. when they didn’t return home on time.
Rescue teams searched on foot Monday night including the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department rescue crews, Montrose Search and Rescue Team, as well as one of the boy’s fathers.
The father of one of the missing teens was first to locate them, and waited for search and rescue teams to arrive at around 5:30 a.m. They were flown out of the San Gabriel Mountain area in a sheriff’s helicopter. No injuries were reported.
Officials found one of the teen’s car in Devil’s Canyon, about 25 miles from where they were found in La Canada-Flintridge.
